Fascinating analysis that everyone should read, especially the part that current problems stem from the compromise that is the Constitution and continued through history to now. Her statement that “The underlying battle of the Civil War was about racism, and it has never ended” shows that the Civil War was just a skirmish in history. “Originalism” was a new term to me. In my opinion, without originalism, the Constitution would be subject to whatever is politically correct at the time. The Constitution is the control that prevents massive swings even worse than what we have now. It can be changed, but it is a slow process. This piece confirms in my mind that things will change, but very slowly, over decades, not in the next couple of years. People need to keep the pressure on and hope that the changes don’t push us into a worse situation.
